Man, this is some wild, weird stuff. Austin, Texas's Calliope Musicals is an epic, psychedelic, overload and its own polyphonic spree. You don't hear the same thing twice as the band assails you from all sides. Utilizing a minimalistic approach in comparison to the largess blasting out the business end, it's a heads-up game on the stage and on the dance floor. It might remind you of The Flaming Lips or something cooked up by Frank Zappa ... on fire.
